Membership Renewal

When can I renew my membership?

You can renew starting 60 days before the expiration date of your existing membership. Your expiration date can be found in the Your Account section of Member Center.

You can also renew your membership anytime after it expires. However, if it expires and you have an app on the Mac App Store, your app will be unavailable until you renew your membership.

What happens if I do not renew my membership?

If your Mac Developer Program membership expires, your apps will no longer be available on the Mac App Store and you will not be able to submit new apps or updates. You will lose access to pre-release software, the Apple Developer Forums, Technical Support Incidents, and Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles. However, you will still have access to iTunes Connect and free development resources.

What happens to my apps on the Mac App Store if I do not renew my membership?

If your membership expires, your apps will no longer be available for purchase and will not appear in search results on the Mac App Store. However, if you renew your membership after it has expired, your apps will be available for purchase on the Mac App Store within 24 hours. You do not need to resubmit your apps.

If I don't renew my membership, will my app still function for customers who have already installed or downloaded it from the Mac App Store?

Yes. If you do not renew your membership, your app will still function for customers who have already installed or downloaded it. However, you will not be able to submit updates and your app will no longer be available on the Mac App Store.

Can I still renew my membership if it has already expired?

Yes. You can renew your membership anytime after it expires by signing in to Member Center with the Apple ID you used to enroll in the Mac Developer Program.

What happens to unused Technical Support Incidents (TSIs) if my membership expires?

TSIs you received as part of your Mac Developer Program will expire with your membership. Should you decide to renew, you will receive two (2) new TSIs with the renewal.

TSIs purchased separately from your Mac Developer Program expire one year from the date of activation. However, you must maintain your membership in the Mac Developer Program to access them.

How do I change my Team Agent information during the renewal process?

Team Agent information cannot be changed during the renewal process. After renewing your program you may contact us to request your changes.

If I am enrolled as an individual, can I switch to company membership when I renew my program?

This change cannot be made during the renewal process. After renewing your program as an individual, you may contact us to switch from individual to company membership. You can make this change only if you are the founder/co-founder of the company.

When will my renewed membership become active?

If your membership is still active when you renew, your renewal will activate as soon as your current membership expires. If your membership has already expired, your renewal will activate once you complete the renewal process.
